This is where I babble about my silly epiphanies, my random thoughts and my aha moments.

Thank god Grandpa isn’t here to see this

When I think about my grandfather's life it seems the perfect time to have been alive. He was born in 1911, and died at 96 year of age nearly witnessing the entire 20th century. He was my favourite person, quietly strong, knowledgeable and always kind to me even when I wasn't perfect. He came from humble beginnings;...

Our Healing Journey Back to Family

If you wish to travel far, fast and light, take off all your envies, jealousy, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears. Cesare Pavese Take a moment and look back on your childhood. What do you see? Are you playing with your favourite toy, swimming in your pool or are you with your family? For me our family vacations define my childhood. My dad built...

Serendipitous Canal Du Midi Boat Tour

  "Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else" If you are lucky this happens.

Fulfilling My Wish to Sing

Hamori, Eva singing debut Sud de France
'All your dreams come true if you have the courage to pursue them'. Walt Disney  https://youtu.be/Zye-4GGANzw The first song I ever learned from beginning to end was 'A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes' sung during the cartoon-version of the movie Cinderella.

Exodus Vancouver – Shallow Breathing

When you own your own breath no one can steal your peace. Author Unknown When I lived in Kits between lives, I took up yoga. It was there that I learned to master the full Yogic breath. You start to inhale slowly as much as you can, hold for a moment, and then inhale a wee bit more. Feel the breath completely fill...

The Future Teaching Paradigm

Some teachers taught the curriculum today. Other teachers taught students today. And there's a big difference. I didn't go to school to become a teacher. Nope! I was scouted out in high school for a business management training program to work in a large retail grocery chain in British Columbia, CANADA where I grew up. A union job that paid...

Diets are for crazy people

I must be crazy! I bought this very slimming black one piece bathsuit about 8 kilos ago. I looked at each morning as motivation! Today I went to Valencia Lake, Hungary and wore it! I felt great. I didn't have to cover myself with beautiful bathing suit covers, or try not to walk...

Are You A Change Junkie?

change junkie
What the heck is a change junkie? When the term 'change junkie' applies to me, I would say I am a person who is always looking for new information, a person who is never content with what is going on around but instead searches for the next project. I get a wee rush not knowing what is around the next corner, and I thrive under...

French New Years Resolutions

Live your Life's Dream! Do what you have always wanted to do and everything falls into place. Pursuing your own happiness, accomplishing the things that actually make you happy and not what you think should make you happy, could be the answer. Instead of making the same resolutions as New Years past, to lose 10 pounds, drink less, and stop yelling...
